Outlook Express Folders
Posted on 2006-06-18
I'm having my Outlook Express folders disappear. I went to one folder today, and it was empty. Luckily, I keep backups, and I was able to copy the relevant DBX folder and get the messages back. I have two questions:
1. What is apt to make the messages disappear?
2. Why do I have multiple copies of the Outlook Express folders?
One is in
Documents and Settings/Myname/Local Settings/Appplication Data/Identities/Long number/Microsoft/Outlook Express
This seems to be the working copy.
The other is in . . . Application Data/Microsoft/Outlook Express
This seems to be an older version, with the last date when I installed Windows XP, which is my OS.
Does OE store the version from a previous OS in this folder?
